End-Point Assessments

From Apprenticeship to Chartership. Creating the experts for the future.

What is an End-Point Assessment?

The End-Point Assessment is the final stage of an apprenticeship and is an unbiased assessment that establishes whether an apprentice has developed the competencies outlined in the apprenticeship standard. 

An End-Point Assessment Organisation (EPAO) delivers End-Point Assessments. To be an EPAO the organisation must be on the Education and Skills Funding Agency register.


The CIOB is now an End-Point Asessment Organisation

The CIOB has been successfully accepted onto the Education and Skills Funding Agency register of End-Point Assessment Organisations. This means we can deliver End-Point Assessments for the following standards in England:

  • Level 6 Construction Site Management
